I am drawn to the frontiers of LOVE as an astronaut is drawn to the exploration of space. Discovering the edges of vulnerability, the cracks and heartbreak that carve the truth to the deepest expression of love is the longing of my Soul. Along the way comes discovering what love is not. This is no easy quest my friends. I wish I could tie everything up with a bright red bow to hold all the answers to what is love. Instead I offer my heart, with all its longing, for even in the midst of the darkest heart lies a spark of light, in the most luminous expression of love sits a seed of darkness.


 Our body is a manifestation of Divine Love
in its most exquisite rendering.

Every breath is a wave,
ebbing and flowing on the shores of Love.

The drumbeat of our heart pulses
A rhythm of Love with every throb.

How does something so simple
Become so complicated?

That which is so near
Become elusive?

Where has Love seized in glacial masses,
Frozen currents shaping muscle and tissue?

Where are walls built in protection,
Fortressed from the fear of hurt?

Where have dams been erected,
To hold back the floodgates of pain?

Where are wounds wrapped in twisted tourniquets,
To deaden and numb the ache of feeling?

Mother Earth by Burguerqueen

It is here we are blind to the brilliance of Love,
Shrouded in darkness behind shadows of demons.

What if Love was not doled out in careful measure?

What if Love did not hold some in greater favor?

What if Love were offered without expectation
of receiving something in return?

What if we were to remember,

We are that Love.

We are Love beyond measure.

We are Love without conditions.

We are Sacred dwellers in a Sea of Love.

The walls and dams we have built against it
Are all that stand in the way of this knowing.

Let the frozen waters melt within
So Love may flow freely
In an infinite dance
With the River
Of Life.

AHO my friends!
